Frederick's is a favourite of mine. I had the set lunch menu today which is excellent value for money. The pea soup was particularly good. I did go a la carte when it came to dessert as I can never resist the chocolate fondant with cherry ice-cream.

Wonderful food and ambience. Staff were attentive and friendly. We're booking our Wedding Reception here in the summer, so we wanted to make sure it was the best. It was a lovely experience and we'll be back many times I'm sure.

A very enjoyable evening for my 70th birthday with my partner, Judith.

Everything was very good from the moment I entered the restaurant and someone took my coat (and later remembered my name when they gave me it back on the way out).

Food was very tasty, well presented and at the right temperature - to the extent that I took some photos.

Service was very friendly and not over done in terms of being asked (is everything OK?)

Wine was well served and good flavour representing good value.

I even had a little candle in my birthday ice cream boule.

Most enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Will return soon.

Whenever I make a reservation in the name of Mark Meek, for example, the system confirms it as Valentine Smith! This is old and needs to change to whatever name I put in the booking. It causes a lot of confusion for my manager, Mark Meek. Please confirm that this is now rectified.
Thanks,

Frederick’s is a true gem. They offer a fantastic combination of being Family run with stellar service and wonderful foods. Plus their menu is seasonal so there are often new and interesting foods to try as well as many favourites. We always look forward to eating there and sharing it with friends and family. Frederick’s is also a great venue to host a group gathering offering several private rooms.

My first visit in years - I realise I have been missing something special. Everything was first rate. The staff were smiling, efficient and lovely. The food was excellent - perfectly cooked bream. And excellent cocktails to kick the evening off. The dining room, with its long glass windows looking out onto the pretty garden is a wonderful space. I am definitely now a fan!

Weekday lunch in Fredrick's with old friends was a delight.
Excellent service, ambiance & food.
Excellent set menu for lunch & early evening as well as a la carte.
We have been coming to Frederick's since they opened. Alas, retirement for most of us means we don't get to this area so often but it is definitely on our map!

Very nice meal at Fredricks and the steak was excellent. However service is very stuffy (the bread service is excruciating) and there’s little atmosphere in the restaurant when it’s not busy (it wasn’t).

But overall, tasty food and will be back in the summer when the garden is open.

We find the atmosphere and style of this restaurant very agreeable. Tables are well spaced , so that you have the atmosphere of a busy restaurant but also privacy for conversation. Furnishings, tableware and linen etc first rate. Service is professional , food imaginative and well presented.

Waited for 30 minutes to get our drinks. It’s pissible that they were under staffed but there’s obviously a rule that more junior servers can’t do certain things like get the bill sorted, there seemed to be a lot of “dithering” from those in the grey shirts, this effected our experience.
Nice food, good value, lovely drinks... just waited too long

Made the most of a lovely Spring afternoon and allotted us an outside table which we had not requested. Had a stroll around the beautiful garden with one of the staff members who was very knowledgeable about the shrubs and trees. Lovely afternoon spent after probably over 25 years since my last visit .

The restaurant had a great ambience and the staff was friendly and attentive. We went for the 3-course menu that’s on offer all night on Mondays and Tuesdays. Loved the soup, but my meat of my main course didn’t have the temperature I requested which was a shame as the flavour was yummy. The brownie for desert was simply delicious! Also got an ice cream with a candle in it for my birthday, which was a lovely surprise. Overall very happy with my visit to Fredrick’s.
